Topic - Recommend me a shop/some shoes

MeMeMe - on 08 Jul 2014

I've been running a few months and don't do loads, maybe 8 miles a week but my very old running shoes (actually I think they are more indoor racquet sports shoes) are falling to bits and I've had to tape the heel on because it's falling off.

I don't want to spend loads on shoes because I don't do enough running to justify it but I don't want to knacker my knees either. I mostly run on the road on fairly hilly routes. My feet are fairly wide.

My budget is about 50 pounds.

Can anyone recommend some decent men's shoes at that price? I just want something that won't knacker me and won't fall to bits.

I'm a bit lost as to what shoes are decent and what aren't. I perused Sports Direct because I though it would be cheap but 90% of their shoes were Karrimor ones and I know they own Karrimor and I wasn't convinced by the quality nor the supposed discounts.

I've looked online at some specialist running shops but the shoes seem to be 80 pound plus which is too much for me to spend when I really don't run that much.

I'm based near Penrith but I also get into Leeds reasonably regularly. So somewhere to try on some shoes near either of those places would be good.
